Older Leeds Utd supporters when asked to name the great Revie team of the late 1960s will invariably name the following 11 -

SPRAKE REANEY COOPER BREMNER CHARLTON HUNTER LORIMER JONES CLARKE GILES GRAY

The only time this side took the field as the starting 11 was on 7th February 1970 in an FA Cup game versus Mansfield town:

Footfan, he’d gone by the late 1960s , but little Bobby Collins( 5ft 3ins) would have to be in any all- time great Revie team. He could really play, but was probably the chief destroyer in a team packed with tough guys. . Watching footage of the first few minutes of the 1965 FA Cup Final, when he ‘ did’ Liverpool hard man Gerry Bryne with a crunching challenge , still makes you winch. How Bryne played the whole game, , including extra-time, despite sustaining a broken collarbone in just the third minute, doesn’t bear thinking about!

The game where Revie conceded the Title to Everton and the FA fined Leeds £5000 for fielding an understrength team.
Today, the Premier League sides field reserve squads in the Cup competitions all the time!

I saw Bobby Collins play for Leeds, I was also at the 1965 Final as a 12 year old. Great player who Revie signed when all thought he was over the hill. He led Leeds to promotion in 1964 and won Footballer of the Year in 1965 as well as winning his Scotland place backl
He broke his thigh after a brutal tackle when Leeds played in Torino in the Fairs Cup in Sept 1965, effectively ending his career although he played a few games for Bury. Revie moved Giles from winger to midfiled to replace Collins.
Howard Wilkinso did a similar signing getting Strachan from Man Utd in 1989 with very similar results for both club and player.

Footyfan, l was at ‘ The Battle of Goodison Park’ 1964. The ref had to take the two teams off to cool down. Fights breaking out all over the pitch. Now that was interesting!

I have the newspapr cuttings from the Battle of Goodison game tucked inside the programme,
The interesting statistic is the foul count that was 19-12 in Everton's favour.

I remember reading somewhere that as part of the deal that took Collins to Leeds from Everton, Catterick was interested in taking Billy Bremner to Goodison. Can you imagine if it had come off, you could have possibly had three great redheads , Tony Kay( if he hadn’t been banned) , Billy Bremner and later Alan Ball all in the same line-up. Would have been fantastic

Footyfan, l think the 19 on the foul count would have all been down to Sandy Brown and Johnny Morrisey. I wish we had another couple like those two in the present Everton team. They need something to shake them up.

Different game today, even minimal contact is a free kick and invariably a Yellow Card, plus the diving/falling over antics.
I find the modern game most frustrating and the modern programme bland.
